Through The Darkness

tales from the backroom

Far away from the charging throngs of the main room lies a small, dark place with a low slung ceiling. Here the BPM is slower, the bass line funkier and the tunes verge on esoteric. They reflect the nature of the space; dirty, sexy, dark. A place and sound not for the masses but for the few who enjoy loosing themselves in the darkness which not only surrounds them but lies within.

Step on into the backroom, find your place on the beat and allow yourself to dance through the darkness.

Love Lost

Not long before spring silently thundered down the valley, love lost, and I lost a love as quickly as the snow melted.

Those empty moments were filled with music reflecting how I felt. As the music played the emptiness slowly filled with a beauty.

Each day the heavy bag of sand I carried on my back became lighter as it trickled out of a small tear in the bottom. Slowly I found my place on the beat and was dancing again.

“Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” -Berthold Auerbach

This is a mix of some the tunes I listened to over that period.

A bit of a renaissance…

…along with an introduction.

Who is SofaKingDirty?

I am a DJ and not a producer. Maybe one day I will produce my own music, but for now I will continue to be a curator of fine works of electronic audio art. Each mix I record is a gallery of sound, exhibiting music created by others I have recently found or am listening to at that time. I hang the pieces on the walls using my decks and guide you round with the mixer.

Unlike a physical visual gallery where each work of art stands alone, in this audio space I can layer the pieces over and under each other, two, three or even four at a time. This creates new and momentary works of art stitching the individual pieces together, forming a tapestry of sound wrapped around the inside of the galley for over an hour…(continued)

Step inside my latest exhibition ‘Renaissance’ and let me dance you through some of the finest works of Electronic Dance Music out there at the moment.
